Excerpt from Gantvoort's School Music Reader

Since the demand for instruction in the elements of vocal music and sight-singing has become almost universal, coming even from the smallest villages, and the rural schools, teachers in those schools have desired a music book designed especially for their use. Their ex pressed desire was: 1) that the book should be large enough and contain enough songs to be of use to them and their pupils through several years of school life; 2) that it contain all the rudimental musical instruction necessary to enable the pupil oii leaving school to take an intelligent part in the singing of the social circle and the church; 3) that it be so arranged that the music lesson could be given to all pupils in the room, old and young, advanced and be ginning, at the same time, although the older and more advanced pupils had different and more difficult work than the younger pupils; 4) that it be arranged so as to be equally applicable in village schools; 5) that the book should contain songs for all occasions of school life, and many occasions of social life; 6) that many of the four-part songs should be so arranged as to be correct when sung in two parts, (soprano and Alto), or in three parts, (soprano, Alto and Bass); 7) that the book be so arranged asto be suitable for use in Teachers' Institutes, and other Teachers' Meetings, and that it contain many of the old and familiar songs, as well as many new ones; 8) that the music be of the best class.

This book is an attempt to gratify this manifold desire on the part of thousands of teachers in our rural and village schools, and is thus arranged to meet their wants: Part I, (pp. 3 contains a number of rote songs, with accompaniment, for Primary pupils.
